[resolved] Remove borders around static front page content area (5 posts)

    I am working to produce a static front page wp site for an artist. It is all black, both the background and the content area. No problem there. The only thing I cannot figure out how to fix is there are thin gray borders around the image header and the content area. It must be all black and the borders are ruining the look. I have set it up with a twenty eleven child theme but although it seems like I have changed everything possible I still see the borders.
    This site is still on my local server (laptop) but if anyone needs to see a screenshot, let me know where I can post it.
    Thanks in advance!!

    link so we can see what's happening?

    otherwise, check css for border property and set to '0'.

    Try using Firebug to see where those border are set in the CSS code. It could also be padding or margins on an element.

    I can't post a link because this site is on my laptop local server using XAMPP. I've trying all the things you both mentioned to no avail. It looks to me like the borders here's the html code from firebug:

    <div id="page" class="hfeed site">
    <header id="masthead" class="site-header" role="banner">
    <h1 class="site-title">
    <a rel="home" title="Suzanne Snow Gallery" href="http://localhost/wordpress/wordpress/">Suzanne Snow Gallery</a>
    <h2 class="site-description">…see paintings on the artist's own site</h2>

    That is the area highlighted in firebug when I float the cursor over the content area of the home page.

    I'll keep trying. Thanks for your help. I'll find it eventually.
